    I love it. Looks pretty solid, and it matches the existin stonework (stone wall on hill) very well. Same stone? I wouldnt worry about color variation at all here my self

    Nice corners. I would suggest in the future doing more cutting on the bricks for equal sizes. As mentioned, more stone color variation would be nice too. Overall, good job. Sell them on a few shrubs + perennials to really set it off.

    The mailbox does look small??

    Yes the stone is the same as the wall on the hill its pa field stone...as far as color variation the stone that comes in th pallet is what i use...you cant get enough money for a mailbox to take forever worring about minor things so i jus pile it up. Semi dry stack takes for ever with 1"-4" stones. This particular mailbox is 5'-5" high and 2'-6" wide it might look small bc the pic is kinda far away. I do a lot of brick mailboxes and piers they go up in one day as opposed to this thing 4 days. Thanks for the feedback everyone.
